Universities welcome short-term layoffs from the business world

Luleå University of Technology and Lund University are currently developing a model that increases the exchange of knowledge between business and universities during the covid-19 pandemic. Personnel in the business world are given a simpler opportunity for competence development at universities, on site or digitally. The possibility is now being tested within a project financed by Vinnova.

The model for so-called affiliate competence that has been developed and is now being tested by Luleå University of Technology and Lund University is based on employees with a key role or core competence within companies being able to easily work at a university for a shorter period. The overall purpose of the stay at the university is that individuals with cutting-edge expertise in various areas of business should be able to further develop their skills for the mutual benefit of themselves, the company and the university.
